Tuolumne Thunderstorms

We’re in the middle of a series of afternoon thunderstorms up here in the high country. Thunderstorms here seem to usually develop in the early afternoon and be cleared out by sunset. And pretty much any time there’s any chance of one, it’s almost a guarantee we’ll get it. I love it. Crazy lightning. Pouring rain. Power outages in the Visitor Center. Gorgeous sunsets.

I took a few pictures Friday evening as I was walking home from work after the first storm. Fortunately it stopped raining right as I was getting ready to start walking.

Saturday is rained all afternoon and didn’t let up until around 8:00. Good thing I had decided to drive to work that day (though it feels weird driving to work when it’s so close – only 2 miles each way). After the rain stopped, a group of us took a late evening walk over to Road Camp to hang out at Ryan’s. The sky was amazingly pretty with the iridescent clouds and the trails were amazingly mushy. Walking back later that night, the clouds broke enough for a nice view of the stars.

Never would’ve imagined I’d be walking through a Sierra Nevada subalpine meadow at night at the end of July wearing a down jacket… I’m continually amazed with Yosemite and my life here.

    Those thunderstorms sound exciting. You’re practically in the clouds with all that lightening. I hope you write a book about your life in Yosemite. You’re blog is great, but I hope you publish!
